The internet also pointed out only two black models walked in the show.


Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid haven’t commented on the backlash, but they aren’t the only celebrities being criticized.


Little sister Bella Hadid was also part of the show.

Next time, maybe designers should reconsider the repercussions of their actions. Just sayin’.
